What a load of tosh
That's very considerate of Virgin at this time however I am sure that's the very least they could do after all their price increases over the last few years.
Heat added.
It's the least they could do. It really is the least.
No difference for me, have all of those channells anyway....

I just have freeview, hardly even watch that either lol...
Which pack. Because I'm sure I already had Fox at least, not sure about the others as frankly they are tosh I wouldn't watch.
Turbo would've been nice , oh well, better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick....
That's great but how the hell do I cancel Premier Sports on Virgin?
Don't have Virgin nor do I even watch TV. But heat for the deal OP. Maybe Branson is trying to get into people's good books with everything he's been doing...

They just use his brand and pay him for it
I got no emails stating this
Pretty sure you get all those anyway if your on the big tv package, not sure of the name of the package but these are all included none the less.

From Martins MoneySavingExpert -

‘’Virgin Media. You can pause your BT Sports subscription through its online form. You can still watch the channels, you just won’t be charged. Virgin Media will stop payments automatically once you’ve made the request, there’s no need to call. It says it will also let you know in advance when payments will restart. ‘’

Been trying to get through to these idiots for the past week, my contract is up and being charged £47 a month for internet. So annoying...
Comedy Central just for reruns and new episodes of Impractical Jokers
Got most of those channels already.
Yeah great a gift I've already got n paid for. Overpaid rather and 4 months later still not sorted my overcharge of nearly 200 quid
They will probably increase the price of the TV packages after the pandemic is over to pay for it - companies like these tend to not give random acts of kindness, all about the money
All these chanels I havve but never watch

There is a form to fill online on their website
Been onto customer service today to sort out my account
Gave up after 2 hours
Pointless, how about 25% off your next three bills? Surely that would be better.
War of the worlds is good
Another deal of VM, please confirm first if it is not another glitch lol
How about a discount for BT sport VM? we are paying for a service that is of no use at the moment and replaced with other channels people wont watch

I think the point is that with more people being stuck at home and less new TV being produced (with actors themselves being stuck at home), they want to give us some more content to fill our time with.

Although, if you already pay for the channels being given free, they probably should give those customers a discount to make it fair.

Not that I’d turn down a discount if I was offered the choice between some free channels I’d already decided weren’t worth paying extra for or a discount. But, I can see the rationale behind the extra channels being given free rather than a discount just because there’s less new stuff to watch on channels that are technically free anyway.

If anything, it should be the TV Licence people that offer the discount for producing less content in the coming months. Or, maybe, just maybe, if they apply the same rationale behind why old people should get a free TV Licence (more likely to be out of work and on a restricted income + more likely to be stuck at home and isolated) to the general population, they should make it free for everyone who’s self-isolating for the next few months. I already questioned why that supposed rationale was only applied to old people and not disabled younger people who are in the same boat, but now that the masses find themselves in the same boat, shouldn’t they question why the rationale only applies to old people too? Is it maybe, just maybe, because that demographic are more likely to vote and they want to keep them sweet? A politically motivated bribe?
The problem I’m having is it’s impossible to downgrade via their website. I’m now paying £66 /m after my contract ended and I can’t switch to a cheaper package - only upgrades are possible online. Online chat refers to call center. Call center hangs up after 35 minutes on hold. I’ve filed complaints, emailed them - nothing. They’re taking advantage of people who work from home who can’t switch providers and are offering no solution for those who have trouble paying their bills. That is what Virgin is doing to help - themselves.

Aren't half of those radio stations or am I misinformed... Surely does not qualify as a "free channel"?

Their support is practically non-existent. Given this time where most people are expected to work from home its rather disgraceful. I had a technician come round after booking online (couldn’t speak to anyone on the phone) who claimed to have fixed an issue we were having (frequent disconnects). As soon as he left the problems continued. Complete waste of time. My advice is stay clear from virgin if you can.

I had this problem before, they finally realised that the cables had rotted away in the cabinet outside due to kids taking the doors off and has worked perfectly ever since

You can pause your payment for Sky Sports and BT Sports on their website, I did it and got £48 back in credit
I phoned them up and got my internet increased for nothing for a year. There are now 9 gadgets using it in my house at one time!
